Publisher's Summary

Lane swore never to be like her late mother. But now she too is a serial killer.

One difference remains - she only stalks and punishes the guilty.

But while trailing a new killer of teenage girls dubbed “The Strangler”, Lane makes a terrible miscalculation and kills the wrong man.

Now the family of the man she accidentally murdered is hunting the killer, and she is forced to cover her tracks by befriending them. Because everyone knows you keep your enemies close.

But are they really enemies? Lane isn’t so sure.

As the plot surrounding “The Strangler” tightens around her like a noose, for the first time she is tempted to trust someone with her darkest secrets. But will breaking down her boundaries bring salvation, or doom?

Poor Narrator

The story really has potential for a strong female version of Dexter, but the narrator made her sound whiney and weak.

Respectable thriller

For me, most of the book was fairly slow. The ending was very good and the book certainly keeps us guessing till the end. Susan Marlowe does this kind of narration very well.

Different view

The Strangler.
To put a genre to it - is YA, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, it is a great story well told.
"Never judge a book by it's genre" I'm due to retire in a couple of years and I thoroughly rnjoyed it
The story of a pair of serial killers told thru the eyes and thoughts of one of the killers.
It is a good read/listen although it is disturbing in places.
Narration is good.
I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review. .

What's not to love?

I was so engrossed in the audible I hadn't realized I stayed up all night listening. I loved the characters their personalities brought out throughout the story making each interesting. the story itself filled with twists I didn't expect. The mystery paying out to perfection. like I said, what's not to love about this audible.

The narrative is performed fantastically. The narrators voice ranged from sweet and innocent to hard and calculating. excellent performance!

I received this audible free at my request. All comments in this review are completely mine.

An unusual thriller

Although this is the first book of the series, I felt that I came into the story in the middle. References were made to characters and events as if they'd been introduced in a prior story. Despite this, I really liked this story. It's gripping and suspenseful with likable main characters that are unusual for this type of story.

Susan Marlowe delivered an excellent performance. She sounded older than the main character telling the story, but her character voices were distinctive and appropriate.

A bit of a head scratch

This is the first book in a series but it was a bit of a head scratch. The main character and serial killer, Lane, would often allude to things that happened with her mother, her aunt, and a copycat killer. She did so often enough and in such a way that it made me think I was missing a piece of the puzzle. It was disconcerting.

Aside from that, the story itself was just okay. I don't think I Iiked Lane very much but I can't say I disliked her either. There was very little in the form of character development, and with the oft-referenced past relationships, I just never had an emotion one way or the other. It was just 'meh.'

I liked the narration although not enough to stay with the story.
